Rowan Celebrates Another Successful Alumni Weekend

The Rowan alumni returned to campus in force on Saturday, May 6 and fielded their strongest side to date in the annual game against the current A side.  Featuring some of the best payers of Rowan’s past, the alumni powered their way to a comfortable win.  The veterans taught the youngsters more than a few lessons.  Most importantly, though, much fun was had by all and quite a bit of excellent rugby was on display.  Click the link to the Rowan Rugby Boosters’ Facebook page to view pictures of all the action.

Following the game, the annual awards dinner and Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held on Saturday night at Masso’s in Glassboro.  An overflow crowd enjoyed a great time.  Congratulations to all the award winners including Matt Bettin (15s MVP), Matt Opacity (7s MVP), JC Cedano (Rookie of the Year) and Casey Smith (Most Improved), to name just a few.
